Who I Follow

8ish hours later, my completed first attempt at red sauce or “gravy.”


Instead of writing an insane long recap of the trip, I’ve created TL;DR for each place I visited.

Muscat, Oman - Sprawling city of all white buildings; has a banging beach setup.

Abu Dhabi, UAE - Ridiculously modern city with amazing diversity. 

Doha, Qatar - How the hell did they put this city together so quickly?


I love it when younger girls look up to older girls as role models and heroes. I love it when older girls enthusiastically support and protect younger girls. I love it when girls are psyched about the skills and accomplishments of other girls, I love it when girls compliment each other, take care of each other, encourage each other. I love it when girls realize how awesome and important they are. I love it when girls are fuckin’ pumped about girls.

I get really emotional about younger girls kicking ass.

I’m mentally exhausted all the time. Even when work’s not crazy busy, my brain feels like it needs a 3 week vacation. Probably because I’m constantly worrying about something else.

I’m hopping on a plane to the Mid East in about 10 hours. Crazy! Going to bring along my crochet so my friend’s future scarf can see the world too.

DOGS. Instead of baby crazy, I am dog crazy. This guy is my favorite for adoption right now. https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/30416412/

House is great! We put up an adorable (but cheap) swing on the front porch. I’m lighting my Christmas wreath candle all the time and crossing fingers that windows open weather is here when I get back from my business trip.

Right after I come back from the Mid East trip, I’ll have 3 weeks until I’m in California for up to 19 days. My desire to travel has come back to bite me in the butt.

BREAST REDUCTION. - Documents have been submitted to the insurance company. Now we wait to see if they will pay for it all. If not, then it’s time to start saving up and pay for it myself. I catch myself thinking about all the clothes I will be able to wear, wondering how preexisting clothes will fit me, and just being overly excited for this surgery.

Really nervous for the Texas governor election this year. I want Wendy to take it, but I feel like it’s not going to happen. ANYWHO. I’ve volunteered to call and knock on doors after I get back. Hopefully being around optimistic people will brighten my outlook.

Sneaking off to D.C. for a nun swearing in ceremony in December. Chris’ sister has to take a blood oath or something? It luckily coincides with our 2 year anniversary, so we’re heading up early to spend the evening in a swanky hotel.

Ready for this HUUUUUUUGE MULTIMILLION dollar project with California to be over. Then I’ve got to get going on a less expensive, but higher pressure project starting in December.

I feel like there’s a lot of burn out going on here within IT. After this CA project, people thought there would be a moment to breathe, to recollect ourselves, but nope..it looks like we’re going to be continuing at our high rate of operations for the foreseeable future. How many employees have to quit before the mgmt. gets it? It’s going to have to be one of their favorites, some high performer, before they realize that we can’t continue this way.

Don’t get me wrong!! Life is great in the personal parts. It’s not 100% doom and gloom over here.

The cat babies are still their adorable selves. I’m really interested how they take to a dog as we get more serious about adopting in January.

So I know The Limited has the official Scandal collection, but New York and Company has a beautiful very Olivia Pope inspired jacket right now. REEAAAALLY want it. Comes in a light pink, burgundy, and black.

Can’t post read mores on mobile so YA ALL GET TO SEE IT.

Scoping out surgeons to do my reduction currently. I’m feeling extremely validated looking at the before and after pictures. I was and still am completely terrified that my insurance won’t cover the surgery. But when I look at the ‘before’ pictures I see “DUUUUDE my boobs are way bigger than those. They totes are going to pay for this.”

Update: I scheduled a consultation for tomorrow. I am so excited. It feels like Christmas.

This migraine has gone from shitty to “oh my god I’m going to die, aren’t I?”
